Picks of the Week

Last installment of Picks of the Week for College Football this year hoping to finish strong after a terrible 1-3 week last week bringing the season total to 33-25. Not many games to choose from this week so I'm only going with 3, hope to finish the on a high note.

Rutgers +10.5 @ West Virginia - Not many people are giving Rutgers a chance in this game, just like they weren't given a chance against Louisville a few weeks back. West Virginia is banged up as Steve Slaton and Pat White are dealing with some injuries not to mention all the speculation surrounding Rich Rodriguez's possible departure to Alabama. Rutgers getting 10.5 points is too many and I'll take the points. Rutgers has a trip to a BCS bowl game as well as the Big East Championship on the line and although they might not win it they're not going to lay over without a fight.

Oklahoma -3.5 vs. Nebraska - I've said it before and I'll say it again Bob Stoops has done an unbelievable job coaching the Sooners this year. No one would have believed they would be in this position after Bomar got booted off the team as well as AP's injury but they are. I'm still not completely sold on the Cornhuskers as well so it makes this pick a bit easier IMO. Sooners to the Fiesta Bowl to take on Boise State.

Arkansas +3 vs. Florida - Arkansas is coming off a tough loss to LSU but Darren McFadden was still able to run wild. I expect more of that this time around and I'm gonna ride Arkansas again this time taking the 3 points. Urban Meyer ran his mouth about Florida deserving to play in the NC game and every time that's happened in the SEC the team has gone out and lost see Tommy Tuberville and Auburn earlier this year, I expect that jinx to continue and the Razorbacks to get to the Sugar Bowl where they would absolutely destroy Notre Dame.
